I'll take a crack at it:
In general a voting method is "monotone" if certain kinds of modifications to the ballot set do not decrease the winning probability of the winner. What these kinds of modifications have in common is that a reasonable person would not expect any of them to hurt the winner.
The taxonomy of different kinds of monotonicity is informed by the specific kinds of modifications contemplated.
Something like that ... you can do better than that Rob, but something along those lines for an introduction to the concept of monotonicity.
