Please, more experienced posters on bitcointalk don't bite my head off with you over educated replies.
I was wondering if this will ever happen or will it even be possible. Your thoughts?

"in the dictionary"

There is not one dictionary.  There are many.

Google is probably the closest thing to one.

And Wikipedia is the closest thing to one encyclopedia.

Bitcoin is a word.  That is not a problem.

It is time for a Bitcoin wallet on every computer and phone.

Good question. I predicted on a message board a couple years back i believe 'austerity' as the word of the year and it was.

according to - Word of the Year 2010 - Merriam-Webster Online www.merriam-webster.com/info/10words.htm‎ Austerity

According to http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/bitcoin does not exist but they do have some suggestions...

bitchin'
biotin
butt in
bichon
biting
button... well you get it.

So, if only Merriam-Webster actually had bitcoin as a word, I would say Bitcoin was the word of the year. Stodgy old Merriam-Webster, they'll be around for the Crowning I'm sure.
