<computer programming> Enforcement of type rules at compile time rather than at run time. Static typing catches more errors at compile time than dynamic typing.

Ada, C, C++, Haskell, Java, and ML are examples of statically typed languages.

Statically typed languages may have strong typing or weak typing.
