Importance of PACC


1)Why is it important to apply 'PACC' when communicating in different social situations 

Answer : So I know what I want to say to who and what I am trying to tell. If not, I might be 
talking to someone who I think may be my audience but is not.

2) If a majority of your classmates hold a certain view about a controversial topic, while you hold a opposing view, how would you convey your thoughts?

Answer : I would be formal as if I was informal, they would not want to hear what I want to say. My tone would also be friendly.  

3) What are the repercussions if tone & register are used wrongly?

Answer : The audience may be confused on what the speaker is feeling. That way, the audience will have a hard time trying to understand.

  1. 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 context.
    2)If I oppose 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 or 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 the least, we must listen to what the others have to say
    3)If tone and register are used wrongly, then the end result of the discussion may be disastrous. We need to keep in mind that even though we may hold our 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.
