An interpreted language is a programming language that does not need to be compiled in order to be executed. Python is this type of language, however python and perhaps others can be compiled into byte code.

The Interpreter will parse the lines, executing the correct functions.

I get the feeling that definitions vary. My definition of an interpreted language is one that is translated into an intermediate type of code. This intermediate code is not machine code and can not be 'directly' executed. The intermediate code is interpreted during execution. A compiled language is one that is translated into machine code which can be directly executed. There is no final translation stage during execution.
