There are also the hybrid languages such as Java, but that's a whole other story.

Java is weird.  I'd still call it a "compiled" language, it just compiles to Java bytecode rather than pure binary bytecode.  The Javabytes are then interpreted by/on the JVM.
But it lets you do some really cool and magical* things.  Such as creating or modifying classes at runtime, making 2+2 equal 5, or over-writing std::in and std:out with blank methods, protecting them against further modification or recreation, and hiding exit().

Yup, that's Haskell.
