Try 'exo-open --launch TerminalEmulator' without the quotes.

I din't "know it" what I did was I looked at the properties ( by a right click on the icon for Terminal ) for Terminal in xfce, on my slackware system, copied and pasted the command line.

What you need to learn is bash, the commands and how to do things there. Terminal is just the gui part. Bash is the default shell in slackware, there are others that you can run, and some users have their reasons for choosing a different shell.
