We describe on-going work towards publishing language resources included in dialectal dictionaries in the Linked Open Data (LOD) cloud, and so to support wider access to the diverse cultural data associated with such dictionary entries, like the various historical and geographical variations of the use of such words. Beyond this, our approach allows the cross-linking of entries of dialectal dictionaries on the basis of the semantic representation of their senses, and also to link the entries of the dialectal dictionaries to lexical senses available in the LOD framework. This paper focuses on the description of the steps leading to a SKOS-XL and lemon encoding of the entries of two Austrian dialectal dictionaries, and how this work supports their cross-linking and linking to other language data in the LOD.
