Final word in a line (8)


I believe the answer is:


'final' is the definition.
(I know that final can be written as terminal)

'word in a line' is the wordplay.
'word' becomes 'term' (term is a kind of word).
'line' becomes 'l' (used when specifying particular lines from a poem).

(Other definitions for terminal that I've seen before include "part of Heathrow?" , "storage facility" , "Electrical connector" , "Tramline (anag.)" , "End point of circuit" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
