As he mentions here, it's advisable to use western terms.
Pizzicato can be seen as a lighter way of performing a kind of staccato. The term is used for violin and likewise instruments to indicate to pluck the cords instead of using the bow. ;-) Both hard things to do for a fluteplayer.
Pizzicato slap is percussive playing technique achieved by the slamming of the tongue against the palate to create a strong "t". Pitch can be perceived according to the position of the embouchure.
