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

Because PACC effect register then effect the tone when communicating in different social situations and the tone will then effect the speech which is either formal or informal. 

2) if 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 ?

i would use a informal speech but i would say in a polite way like , " i think i hold a opposing view of this controversial topic . "

3) what are the possible repercussions if tone and register are used wrongly?

the person that is listening will understand differently.

  1. 1) it is important to apply PACC when communicating , because the register (formal or informal ) will depend on the audience. tone depend 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 in polite manner. The register needs to be formal and the tone should be firm and respectful ( and not offending or demeaning ). For content , phases like “i beg to differ” , “ in my humble opinion” my be used . Proper reasons should be provided. last but not the least , we must listen to what 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 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 demeaning others ( in this case our friends ) so, the discussion may end in a fight/ quarrel which in turn will damage relationships.
