    They're all directions. Shout=south, sate=east, stew=west, thorn=north.

      Very good, Wilhelmina Sophia. Absolutely correct, and also first to answer.

    They all have the letter T. Looks like I'm supposed to make a longer answer, according to the notice I received. So, what shall I say: Shout has a T at the end; sate has a T second to last letter; Stew's second letter is a T; first letter of the word Thorn is a T.

      When I tried this riddle out on some folks in my physical world, your answer was the first thing they observed too. Good job! It's accurate, even though not covering the whole story. Thanks for your response.

    I'm pretty sure that Wilhelmina sophia has the best answer, but...

    * They're all one syllable
    * As NateB11 said, they all have the letter T
    * They are all examples of "extremes" of something

    I'm pretty sure Wilhelmina's got it, but that's my guess.
