Georguii Vladimírovich Stepánov (09.04.1919- 28.10.1986) fue un eminente investigador ruso, un gran especialista en filología románica, lingüística general y crítica literaria, autor de cerca de 200 trabajos publicados (entre los cuales hay 6 monografías), donde se estudian la variabilidad lingüística, estructura de la lengua, tipología de las lenguas románicas, teoría de las lenguas literarias, sociolingüística, poética, estilística e historia de la literatura.

La obra de G.V Stepánov está estrechamente ligada al desarrollo de la hispanística y de los estudios latinoamericanos en la Unión Soviética desde diferentes puntos de vista. Sus trabajos en estos ámbitos constituyeron la base de posteriores investigaciones teóricas sobre la variación lingüística, sociolingüística y poética.
