"Obviously"? Remind me the definition of Maggelity please? ;)))))

The end result is correct, but the explanation is not ;))) .

Nice idea, but sooo wrong :)) .

Hehe, nice trap is that one isn't it? :)))

If only it was so simple ;)))) .

Anyway, I think you read the right answer by now :) .

Well, according to the rules of Maggel's orthography, you'd be wrong, but since
less than half the words in Maggel obey those rules... ;))) And I like the word
you made, though to fit it a little better to the rules (since Maggel words are
rarely completely irregular, that wouldn't be fun ;))) ), I'd rather pronounce
it ['bGV:I.@z]. That's because |hd| is most often [G], and the use of preposed
|g| for length is quite regular.
But given the amount of irregularity of the orthography of Maggel, your
proposal would be possible too.
In fact, I like your word!!! :)) I'm gonna include it in the vocabulary of
Maggel. What meaning would you give it? ;))))
Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
