Importance of PACC

1)Why is it important to apply PACC when communicating in different social situation
2)If a majority of your classmate hold a certain view about a controversial topic, while you hold an opposing view, how would you convey your thoughts politely
3)what are the possible repercussions if tone and register are used wrongly

It is important to apply PACC as without a purpose, you would not even talk as there is no need to, if there is no audience, you have no one to talk to, if there is no context you would not even know what to say and if there is no content, you will not have anything to say.

I would speak in a polite, happy tone but not in a angry tone.

it may give people the wrong idea and may start an argument and maybe even a fight if the tone is not right.

  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 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 in 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 the differ'' , ''In my humble opinion '' may",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 maybe disastrous.we need to keep in mind that even though that we may hold our different view points 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 relationship.
