    Re: taut

    (I am not a teacher) I think the word you may be looking for is "to taunt" however this word usually means "to ridicule".

    A word that would better fit your example is "to tease" or "to tempt":

    The dog was sitting at my feet and I kept teasing him with my food.

    She knows I am on a diet and yet she can't resist tempting me with that delicious ice cream she is eating.
