Keyword LANGUAGE is used in pl/sql when creating external procedures. http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B19306_01/appdev.102/b14251/adfns_extern_proc.htm#i1006405 It is also pl/sql keyword
The syntax was the same also in 9i, don't know why it throws error now. Probably more strict restrictions on using them.
