Reserved word? or not?

Hi All

We have an external table that reads from a datafile just fine in Oracle 9i. However we upgraded our test environment to 10G and now it complaints about the column name "LANGUAGE". It expects double quotes.

I had a look in the v$reserved_words view and do not see this word as reserved.
Changing the column name to language1(or something) fixes the problem, but I am wondering why we need to do this.
