Haskell is a standardized purely functional programming language with non-strict semantics, named after the logician Haskell Curry. It is one of the more popular functional languages, and the lazy functional language on which the most research is being performed.

Characteristic features of Haskell include pattern matching, currying, list comprehensions, guards, definable operators, and single assignment. The language also supports recursive functions and algebraic data types, as well as lazy evaluation. Unique concepts include monads, and type classes. The combination of such features can make functions which would be difficult to write in a procedural programming language almost trivial to implement in Haskell.

Several variants have been developed: parallelizable versions from MIT and Glasgow, both called Parallel Haskell; more parallel and distributed versions called Distributed Haskell (formerly Goffin) and Eden; a speculatively evaluating version called Eager Haskell and several object oriented versions: Haskell++, O'Haskell and Mondrian.

There is also a Haskell-like language that offers a new method of support for GUI development called Concurrent Clean. Its biggest deviations from Haskell are use of uniqueness types for input instead of monads.
