What does it mean to be a parliamentary democracy?

Parliamentary democracy, democratic form of government in which the party (or a coalition of parties) with the greatest representation in the parliament (legislature) forms the government, its leader becoming prime minister or chancellor.

Similarly, what is the difference between a parliamentary and presidential form of government?

The key technical difference: a President is elected by the voters, while the head of state in a parliament (generally Prime Minister) is elected by the legislature. The difference seems small, but it ends up making a world of difference.
