In English the plural of duo is duos. However, I am not sure in Spanish.

I looked in the DRAE that is the most famous dictionary in Spanish and I did not find the plural. Then, I am not sure if duos in Spanish is dúo or dúos.

Google and linguee.es translate duos to dúos.

I forgot to say that I believe that this is an important question because Wikipedia says "Los Dúo is a studio album released by Juan Gabriel on February 10, 2015."

Then, it seems that the company of the famous Mexican singer Juan Gabriel made a big mistake using for plural dúo instead of dúos.

Thanks for your help!

  • You shouldn't need any special source. It a simple plural form constructed using the common rules. If a noun end on not accented vowel you put a 's' at the end.
