you should understand if it is a nour or adjective. as adj.- survival mask - a thing that helps you to survive. as noun- her survival was unexpected. she is a lucky survivor. or terminal and terminator... terminal as adj. means end of something and as noun it means the end itself. so terminator then means a thing that terminates (ends) something. ex: she has a terminal sickness. (in this sentence we're sure her sickness will cause death. sickness is her terminator.
