"Of quadrilateral figures, a square is that which is both equilateral and right-angled; an oblong that which is right-angled but not equilateral; a rhombus that which is equilateral but not right-angled; and a rhomboid that which has its opposite sides and angles equal to one another but is neither equilateral nor right-angled. And let quadrilaterals other than these be called trapezia. " http://aleph0.clarku.edu/~djoyce/java/elements/bookI/defI22.html

No-trapezoid have only one set of sides parallel, while squares have both sets of sides parallel. This chart should clear things up.
