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.
