There is a Word of Power next to the Shrine to Meridia near Solitude, but it will not give the word to me. It plays the epic music, but the word doesn't shine and nothing happens when I get close.

Would you mind supplying your answer so others in the same situation get an answer too? – user3389 Feb 4 '12 at 1:21
Why would this question be down-voted? – Yuck Feb 4 '12 at 2:07
@Yuck: I'd guess the downvote was in response to an earlier version of the question. – Brant Feb 4 '12 at 2:14

Although I'm not sure if you're asking a question or making a statement I would like to confirm that the word "Grah" of the Elemental Fury shout found at Meridia statue is in fact bugged. As far as I can see there isn't a perfect fix yet. This is from the Skyrim wiki

When at the word wall near Meridia's Shrine, you won't be able to collect the shout.

and from the Skyrim wikia

The Dragon Shout may never load causing you to never receive the shout. Sights and sounds still appear.

A work-a-round involves reloading a previous save and trying again and again until it works. Not the best solution I know but at least you know you can read it and you're not the only one experiencing this problem.

I had the problem also. I got it to work by saving while standing in front of the wall. Exited the game, then re-entered the game. And then the word glowed correctly, and I learned/absorbed it.

Joe is spot on. Just did the same thing and it worked. Thank you. – user34347 Oct 12 '12 at 11:28
Just did the same as Joe but had to load and exit a couple of times before it gave me the shout, but got it in the end cheers – user37125 Nov 18 '12 at 11:27
