English translation:pot joint, fixed joint, plunging joint
Explanation:
Pls note the terms are BE. The plunging joint (slip joint AE) is a shaft joint used to balance length. The pot joint is a shaft joint which permits an axial movement of the driving shaft part within a cylindrical joint shell.

Oh, btw, these terms are used in motor-vehicle engineering.

Explanation:
pot joint and fixed joint are confirmed by Schmidt-Pons Fachwörterbuch der Kfz-Technik for both AE and BE, but they give plunging joint and sliding joint for BE and slip joint for AE.
