E.F.K. ("Konrad") Koerner (B. Phil., M.A., Ph.D.) has been a Professor of General Linguistics at the University of Ottawa since 1976.

He is the founding editor of Historicgraphia Linguistica, Diachronica, and various associated monograph series published by John Benjamins of Amsterdam and Philadelphia (since 1973 more than 350 volumes have appeared) as well as being organizer of international meetings and societies in linguistic historiography. His efforts over the past 30 years have been recognized by three Festschriften, various medals and diplomas, an honorary doctorate and memberships in the Royal Society of Canada and the Royal Society of Arts (London). More recently, he has received the Year 2000 Konrad Adenauer Research Award of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (for which he is to spend the 2002-2003 academic year in Germany).
