I am confused. How am I supposed to find out the Words' location in the world (not using internet)? Say I want to complete my Fire Breath shout, what am I supposed to do?

And also, do multiple shouts share some words? I don't even know which exist, but say, is Fus used in other shoults than Unrelenting Force? (If not, it kinda sucks)

if you use a shout while in a town, often a courier will run up to you with a message and any nearby dungeons containing words –  z ' Nov 20 '11 at 3:04

Most of the time you will find shouts during quests; couriers will deliver messages to you revealing shout locations, Sometimes the shout will be in the area the quest takes place. Just keep an eye out.

If you don't mind soiling your experience (imo) you can look up the locations for shout words online and attain them that way.

As for part two of your question, I'm pretty sure all shouts have unique words they use. So no, words are only used once.

Two ways to find dragon shouts are to use your current dragon shouts in a town until a courier will come along giving you a letter which will lead you to another word wall, keep in mind, you can only have one letter at a time, you need to find the current word wall before a courier will deliver a new note.

The second way is to talk to Arngeir (who you will meet along the main storyline) and he will direct you to a word wall that you haven't found yet. Just like with the couriers, you can only have one quest from Arngeir at a time.

The two quests aren't mutually exclusive though, and you can have one of each at a time, giving you two word walls at a time to find.

@BenBlank My net was down when I first wrote this, I guess when I tried to resubmit it, it cut the end off, will edit it with the rest of the info. –  Mr Smooth Nov 20 '11 at 8:32
