Importance of PACC

It is important to apply 'PACC' when communicating in a different social situations so that we could communicate more politely and understand people better.
I would convey my thoughts politely by saying standing up and saying out my thoughts politely and ask whether they could think twice on using my thoughts.
The possible repercussions that might happen if tone or register are used wrongly are quarrels, people having a bad impression of you and hurting others feelings.


  1. It is important to apply PACC when communicating because the register (formal or informal) will depend on the audience. Tone depends on purpose and context so , we will not be able to communicate effectively using the right tone and register if we are unaware of the purpose audience and content

  2. If I appose a certain view then i must let the whole class know i a polite manner. The register needs to be formal and tone should be firm yet respectful (and not offending and demeaning). For content, phrases like (I beg to differ), "in my humble opinion ", etc may be used. Proper reasons should be provided. Last but not least, we must listen to what the others have to say.

  3. If tone register is used wrongly then the end result of the discussion may be disastrous . We need to keep in mind even though we may hold a different view point from the rest of the classmates, we need to be respectful, polite yet firm. We cannot under any circumstances hurt or demean others (in this case our friends). So, the discussion may end in a fight/quarrel which in turn will damage relationships.
