Unimolecular means that the reaction involves one molecule, bimolecular means the reaction involves two molecules, and termolecular means the reaction involves three molecules.

The molecularity also corresponds to the overall order of a reaction.
For example:
Unimolecular is 1st order
Bimolecular is 2nd order
Termolecular is 3rd order
