i have experienced this on word walls that I have already learned the word from, but never a new word wall. are you sure you haven't already been to that wall before?

If you already know the word/been to that wall before, it won't do the "glowing/gets dark for a second" thing.

i thought that there were 3 walls for each thu'um, and finding all three was the only way that you could max them out.

the skyborn alter wall teaches frost breath (or something dealing with ice), i have found it before on a different wall, but this was my first time going to skyborn.

It happened to me once, I had to fast travel back to it (even if it's from there, to there) and it reset it and let me learn it

it's a glitch where you cannot learn the word on a wall. Reload past save before killing the dragon.
