So I just read a word off a word wall, had the display pop up "You've learned a new shout - Statue, Ice Form" but when I go to my shouts menu to activate it it says I haven't learned it yet...
Some backstory: I had just gotten "Ice, Ice form" from Saarthax and had activated it. Its as though the word never gets learned, but I can't read it off the wall again. I sure hope this doesn't mean I can't learn any more shouts, or that I can only learn the first word.

Not illiterate, more like extreme short term memory loss?
Here's my exact scenario:
I just found the first word of Ice Form (Ice) when I ran through Saarthal. I didn't activate it because I didn't have a soul to do so (new character, haven't taken down many dragons yet). Had a quest to hunt a dragon at Mount Anthor, which happens to be the location of the second word of Ice Form (Statue). Killed the dragon and got his soul.
On one try I approached the word wall with my one dragon soul and "Ice, Ice Form" unactivated. No dice. I reloaded and tried again with it activated but again no dice. Does that help illustrate my predicament?
I am having this exact problem. To clarify, the issue is NOT that I need to unlock the shout with a dragon soul. I have done that many times and I know how it works. What is happening is that the word is not appearing in my shout menu at all. And yes, I am certain that this is not a word I already know - it's the second word of the elemental fury shout, and I currently only know the first.
Anyone else have this issue or know a way to work around it? I may end up just avoiding this word wall until it's fixed with a patch, but I'd really prefer not to if there's another way around it.
