I kno= w of no split that occurred between Interglossa and Glosa. Interglossa wa= s a dead idea until Ron Clark found the book and contacted Hogben, who wa= s then in a wheelchair. About 1975 the idea for Glosa was developed.

= Besides the change to a more phonetic spelling, a few words were changed. = SU is now QI, APO is AB, APO is now a verboid, not a preposition. Wherea= s Hogben preferred the words of Greek origin, Glosa uses more words of La= tin origin. The tendency to put -O at the end of nouns and -E at the end = of verboids is gone. Hogben’s formulas for sentence order were replaced w= ith the simpler SUBJECT-VERB-OBJECT order, with modifiers coming before t= hose parts of speech.

The changes are not so different; I can understan= d Hogben’s earlier writings without much difficulty.
