Cross cutting wood is cutting across the wood's grain as opposed to ripping, which is cutting with the grain.

Just to add to Greyhead's excellent answer, if you had a 2x6x10 feet, a cross cut would be cutting the 5 1/2 inch dimension while ripping would be a 10 foot long cut along the board's length.
