How and Where to Find the Dragon Shouts

Dragon shouts are learned through various methods in the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

A number of them are learned as you complete the Main Story, but some are also connected to other guild quests and side quests found in the game.

Dragon shouts must first be learned through dragon walls or through meditating with the Greybeards of High Hrothgar.

In order to unlock a dragon shout after it has been learned, you must kill a dragon and absorb its soul and then unlock it in the Shouts menu of your magic category.

Here are all twenty dragon shouts listed in alphabetical order:
