Irish Gaelic is slightly Maggelic, but Scots Gaelic is even more, since
Irish had its orthography reformed in the mid-20th century. French has a low
level of Maggelity, and modern Tamil also has a bit. Some of the Arabic
dialects could be considered Maggelic, since the Standard language tends
written while the local vernacular is spoken.
