Expectancy violations theory (EVT) was developed by Judee K. Burgoon and several colleagues to predict and explain the impact of unexpected communication behavior. Inspired partly by Michael Burgoon’s linguistic-based expectancy theory and by Robert Rosenthal’s expectancy signaling work, it originated as a theory of the effects of interpersonal proxemic violations. It has subsequently been expanded to cover other forms of nonverbal and verbal communication violations.
