Beware is a verb whereas aware is an adjective.
Beware - to be cautious; exert caution
e.g. Beware of the dog. We have to beware of the icy patches on the road.
Aware - means - having knowledge
e.g. Are you aware that I am coming to the party?
tease/mock/sneer all are verbs. Mock/sneer are also nouns.
tease - to make fun of; mock playfully; to arouse hope or desire without affording satisfaction; to annoy.
e.g. She is teasing her mother for more candies. Don't tease me!
mock - to treat with ridicule or contempt; to frustrate the hope of; disappoint
e.g. They mocked at the idea. He mocked his wife's efforts at cooking.
sneer - to speak in a scornful, contemptuous manner, with derisive facial expression
e.g. What are you sneer for? He sneered at our attempts to improve the situation.
Tease is used in a moderate manner.
Mock and sneer are used in a more serious manner.
