|Title||Better Nicely Linked than Poorly Copied. Historical and Regional Dictionaries of Dutch Digitally United|
|Abstract||The Woordenboek der Nederlandsche Taal (Dictionary of the Dutch Language, WNT) has been freely available online since January 2007 (http://wnt.inl.nl). Compared to the original (printed) dictionary, the search facilities have been considerably expanded. For instance, you can now search for a headword using modern spelling, and submeanings and citations can be displayed or omitted on demand.
Another innovation is that headwords in the WNT are now linked to external information, for example, to language maps, pictures and etymological information. At the moment, we add links to the available dialect material, starting with the large dictionaries of the dialects of Flanders, Brabant and Limburg. In this contribution we describe how this is done.
