if you refer to vertex shaders/pixel shaders they are methods of modifing how lightening and texturing is handled (among other things). vertex shaders can be done in software (which means any card can handle them), but pixel shaders require dedicated hardware and only the newest cards support them (geForce3, raedons). if you are just refering to shading as an english word, then its the creation of darker areas due to lighting.
