espectáculo m (plural espectáculos)

  1. Superseded spelling of espetáculo. (Superseded in Brazil by the 1943 spelling reform and by the Orthographic Agreement of 1990 elsewhere. Still used in countries where the agreement hasn’t come into effect and as an alternative spelling in Portugal.)



Borrowed from Latin spectaculum. Cognate with English spectacle.
