static testing : this sort of testing is also called verification. this testing involves including inspections,walkthroughs...Dynamic testing deals with the functional testing ( ie) executional testing...when it comes to static every things will be verified.

Static testing is also a verification or inprocess reviewing.It means that the test is being performed without executing the code.It will occur  throughout the development phase in the form of reviews ,walkthroughs ,inspections

Functional testing is testing software based on its functional requirements. It ensures that the program physically works the way it was intended

Static testing is a kind of Verification. 
Functional testing is a Black box testing where you need to execute system so 
static testing is not same as functional testing.

Static Testing is a form of software testing where the software isn't actually used. Syntax checking and manually reading the code to find errors are methods of static testing. This type of testing is mostly used by the developer himself/herself (who designed or code the module). So not a functional testing

Static testing is a form of software testing that takes place before the software is compiled and run.  In dynamic testing the software must be compiled and run.  Static testing generally checks the syntax of the source code or the sanity of its algorithm whereas dynamic testing examines the physical response from the system to variables that are not constant and change with time.  Functional testing is a facet of dynamic testing which is performed on a complete, integrated system to evaluate the system's compliance with its requirements.
