Andrey Anatolyevich Zaliznyak (29 April 1935 – 24 December 2017) was a Russian linguist, an expert in historical linguistics and grammar. He was born in Moscow. He was known for his attention to the popularizing of linguistics and to the struggle against pseudoscience. In 2004, he published a study of the Tale of Igor's Campaign.
