According to the Wikipedia definition, Haskell is a scripting language (it can be dynamically typed, interpreted, embedded, etc). That's why I don't think it's a useful definition.

How do you write a full application in JavaScript? The language doesn't even define any way to open a file. NodeJS is a third-party tool -- it's not part of the JavaScript language.
