What does statically typed language mean?

A language that enforces type safety at compile time is called a statically typed language.

For example trying something like this will throw an error at compile time

int i = 5.25;

Compile time error: Cannot implicitly convert type 'double' to 'int'. An explicit conversion exists (are you missing a cast?)
