If you are referring to user-defined dictionaries "xyz.dic" (path: .../user/wordbook) in user-editable "OOoUserDict1" format, e.g. Language English (USA):

OOoUserDict1
lang: en-US
type: positive
---
[...]

(1) Open the "*.dic" files with a text editor, and copy/paste the word lists in a single "sample.txt" file (flat UTF-8).

(2) Sort the content: alphanumeric, ascending (you may use Writer, menu "Tools → Sort").

(3) Add the encoding lines at the beginning ("OOoUserDict1...", see above).

(4) Save the file, rename it to "sample.dic", add "sample.dic" to .../user/wordbook.

(5) Open Writer, check menu `Tools → Options → Language Settings → Writing Aids → User-defined dictionaries → ☑ sample [English (USA)]

See also (OOo) → Bug 106032 - linguistic: make human-readable user-dicts the default format?

As far as I can see in → Bug 48676 - Remove or expand limitation on User dictionary, the limit of entries in a user-defined dictionary has the value 30,000.
