Word problems are found to have generic and historical connections to parables, riddles and puzzles. Word problems are also story problems, and pose mathematical questions in the form of stories. So mathematical word problems can also be seen from the point of view of literature and narrative theory, and can be viewed against a background of stories in general. Again certain peculiarities become evident, this time in terms of plot and character, the positioning of the narrator and reader, the placement of the narration in time and place – and these peculiarities are closely linked to word problems’ linguistic features.
