It helps to know the definition of the word dynamic and static.
According to IBM's definition, dynamic means "pertaining to an operation that occurs when it is needed", rather than static which means, "little if any change."
Linked just means "coupled" or "connected", so dynamically linked literately means connected when needed, and statically linked literally means connected with no change.
