    Logicaly or Logically, this is the question.

    Both spellings may be found.
    Who is the authority that decides in these questions?

    "Logicaly" is incorrect.

    ***Neither a teacher nor a native speaker.***

    Both spellings may be found.
    A lot of things may be found, but you should not pay attention to everything you read.

    The general rule is to add an -ly on an adjective when you want to make an adverb out of it.
    Of course there are exceptions, but when it ends on an l, you can simply add an -ly.
    Normal -> Normally
    Usual -> Usually
    Grammatical -> Grammatically
    Logical -> Logically

    As said, don't take the rule too seriously, but these 4 examples should show you how to handle such words.

    Cheers!
