I hope we do plan to allow more than one terminus? [1.4 e:]
If so, we need a plural form. 
I propose 
          termini (ter'-mi-ni) 
                     [not (ter-mi'-ni)], 
rather than 
          terminuses (ter'-mi-nus-es), or even (term'-i-nus-es)
                     [not (ter-min'-us-es)]

I wonder what current algorithmic hyphenators do least violence?
I don't want to be ter(ribly) negative here.
