1) Why is it important to apply 'PACC' when communicating in different social situations?
Answer: Using ‘PACC” when communicating is important as it helps to enhance your sentence through different tones and the words you use. Eg: If you are happy and talking to a friend, your register would be informal (using an informal way of speaking and an informal choice of words) and your tone would be either cheerful or sad (depending on the situation).
2) If a majority of your classmates hold a certain view about a controversial topic, while you hold an opposing view, how would you convey your thoughts politely?
Answer: I would stand up and try to talk to them about my view using formal language and a formal way of speaking to them and try to make them consider how it makes sense.
3) What are the possible repercussions if the tone and register were used wrongly?
Answer: Using the example in the above question, if I use informal language and an informal way of speaking, my classmates will not listen and if my idea would work, it would be wasted.
