In a nutshell a traditional frame is one with the top tube parallel to the ground. A compact frame is one where the top tube slopes downward as it moves back towards the seat post.
There's been a ton of discussion on the pro's and con's of these two frame types. My current bike has a compact frame, my next bike won't.
