Catherine, 

I think the best way to learn and consolidate specific or technical terms like this is usually a web search. It almost always throws up images, descriptions and definitions, and especially if you choose French sites for explanation, is an opportunity to practise French with a purpose. 

Traditionally a clafoutis was made with cherries. Some, particularly from the Limousin region, will argue using any other fruit does not result in a clafoutis, but ‘une flaugnarde/flognarde’  but that distinction is not made (or even known in my experience) generally in France as you will see from recipe sites - for both professional and amateur.
