While looking at a list covering the compositions of Swathi Thirunal I found a language unknown to me : Manipravalam

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manipravalam
Quote:
Manipravalam was a literary style used in medieval liturgical texts in South India, which used an admixture of Tamil (early Malayalam of Kerala) and Sanskrit.[1][2][3] Manipravalam is termed a mixture of Sanskrit and Tamil.[4] Tamil language was the language of the region, part of Tamilakam, at the time of Manipravalam's genesis and use and its introduction caused a significant transition of Malayalam from Tamil in Kerala.[5][6][7] Mani-pravalam literally means ruby-coral, where Mani means ruby in Tamil while Pravalam means Coral in Sanskrit.[8] Malayalam is referred to as ruby and Sanskrit as coral.[3] This was prevalent in Vaishnavite religious literature in Tamil Nadu and literary works in general in Kerala.
Here is th index of Swathi Thirunal songs :
