What _exactly_ do you mean by 'procedure language'?

I think he means "Not object oriented"

But can't one author code either procedurally or OO in the same
language?

(This may not be the authority, but):

"The most popular programming languages usually have both OOP and
procedural aspects."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Procedural_programming#Comparison_with_object-oriented_programming

Perhaps the most popular language used for OOP is Java, but you can
write procedural code in Java if you wanted, correct? I was hoping
that the OP could list the exact criteria he was using for determining
the answer to his question.
