Tekiah: One blow that lasts 2-3 seconds
Shevarim: A "broken" tekiah, made by sounding three quick blasts
Teruah: The alarm is made up of nine very quick pulses
Tekiah Gedolah: Meaning "Big Tekiah", the Tokea (person who sounds the shofar) blows the shofar for as long as possible, but at least 9 seconds. If more than one Tokea are sounding, they often compete to see who can last longer.
During Rosh Hashanah, a sequence of blows is done. At Yom Kippur, only Tekiah Gedolah is blown.
