Do a Google search for "cracked tiles". If tiles are cracked, it's usually from movement but not every time.

I put the words "tile tenting" into google images and found lots of results. I would think that "loose tiles" and "cracked tiles" would be good terms also.

Here's one photo in that seach from our own site.
