UMMOA English (UGV; en-UGV; Ⓤ), originally a mere extension of British English (en-GB), is now a distinct variant of English, and is also distinct from Oxford English Dictionary English (en-GB-oed), and American English (en-US).

UMMOA English is the variant form of English that is standard in the United Micronations Multi-Oceanic Archipelago or UMMOA, and includes both unique vocabulary in various fields of human endeavour, as well as variant English word forms that are currently not present even in British English.

UMMOA® is a registered trademark of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). A USPTO examining attorney has described the UMMOA wordmark as indicating "membership in a political organization concerned with international affairs":

The United Micronations Multi-Oceanic Archipelago (UMMOA) is in fact a nation or people scattered around the world, which is developing a distinct culture, even distinct sciences or branches of science. More comprehensive, yet brief information about the UMMOA, is available here:

UMMOA English is not the only language spoken by Ummoagians, as several other languages are used daily, and there is strong respect for linguistic diversity, as practical language preservation is one of the four major national missions of the UMMOA, but UMMOA English is the language spoken by the majority [1], and is the only official language today.

Being that UMMOA® is a registered trademark, and thus it is not a private use subtag; being that the UMMOA subtag is one that does not require any external or foreign permission to use, but it can be nonetheless confused with the UMMOA® registered trademark, which represents more a people than their language or language variant; on 1 October 2014 (J:14K2014) it was resolved that the UMMOA shall find the use of the en-UMMOA variant language tag acceptable, but shall prefer or favour increased use of the more appropriate en-UGV variant language tag, and the UGV variant language subtag, as the increasing complexity and distinctiveness of UMMOA English shall demand it.

Towards this purpose, two New Zealand domains were registered by the Governor, in order to facilitate the use and acceptance of this linguistic standard.

On 7 July 2015, the Governor of the UMMOA has redefined proper and improper official use of language in the United Micronations Multi-Oceanic Archipelago (UMMOA®), and this official statement was posted on the website:

The UMMOA remains committed to the national mission "to preserve as much linguistic diversity as is practical, culturally desirable, and economically feasible", but can no longer allow this mission to create unnecessary one-sided burdens, economic and otherwise, on the UMMOA. The UMMOA is recognised by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), and the UMMOA wordmark is further affirmed by the same US government agency as indicating "membership in a political organization concerned with international affairs". No other government agency, and most notably, no other government agency whose official working language is not English in any form recognises, and/or positively affirms the existence and dignity of the UMMOA is such a manner, and this includes government agencies whose official working language is Italian, with which the UMMOA can, and has communicated with in the past without even polite reciprocity. The UMMOA's language definition policy also defines a true language as a societalistic tool of oral and written communication. This language definition policy completely excludes languages that are primarily used as religious, economic, and/or political control tools by big religion, big business, and big politics. The UMMOA's language definition policy defines these as false languages or dialects, and as anti-societalistic tools of oral and written communication. With few exceptions, the UMMOA now uses only UMMOA English (UGV; en-UGV), and any other English language variant form used by governments, which also completely excludes the Oxford spelling (en-GB-oed) English language variant form used by many international organisations which neither recognise the UMMOA, nor its societalistic philosophy.
