Porting a traditional dialectal Dictionary into a computational Lexicon: The Example of WBÖ

The Diciionaty o fBavarian Dialects in Ausfria (Wörterbuch der bairischen Mundarten in Osterrejch (WBO)) is a traditional dialectal dictionary (project funding in 1911). Since 2012 the dictionary is available as online version (simple ebook). In 2013 the authors of this paper started to rethink it in a non-traditional way with the focus to open it for further research questions and to render it 1) operational for certain corpus linguistic tasks and 2) for supporting search in a semantic framework, like the Linked Open Data infrastructure (see http://linkeddata.org/).
