    Have you tried reloading your last save? Doing that seems to fix a lot of bugs in the game like this. Is this the part where they teach you the "Clear Skies" shout to travel to the Throat of the World? If so, maybe you need to read all the words from left to right? I'm not sure, I have never heard of this.

    You need to place yourself in front of Wulfgar and try 'talking' to him. He needs to share his knowledge of the word with you (this is how you learn them without using up a dragon soul).

    Make sure it's Wulfgar you're in front of and not Argneir (who is the actual guy who takes the horn).

    Oh wait, I'm a fool. If you just returned the horn, this is the remaining words of Unrelenting Force. I would suggest loading your last save. That's all I really know. I will look at the wiki for you.

    Hmm, there were no bugs listed on the wiki for this. So the word is on the ground, and you haven't learned the word at all. And reloading a save didnt help? Man I'm stumped

    And the quest journal still says "Learn the word of power from Wulfgar?" Poop, this would be easier if I could see what was going on haha. You probably need someone with more brain power than me to help you haha! :confused:

    Here's one note in the bugs section of the UESP entry you might try:

    Master Wulfgar may not teach you the last word for the shout Unrelenting Force and will bow at you when you try to talk to him. A solution is to go outside and close the big gate that you had to use Whirlwind Sprint with. The Greybeards will then follow you inside and you can learn the final word of the shout.

    Have you tried leaving and coming back? Just exiting the High Hrothgar building and coming back in?
