Didn't match


     וישמע הכנעני מלך ערד ישב הנגב *   

Rashi explains that it was actually עמלק who was ישב הנגב but
disguised himself, by speaking in the language of  כנען
so to confuse the Yidden when they will Daven to Hashem
to save them from the enemy כנען instead of עמלק

Since they  wore Amaleiki clothing the Yidden
realized something doesn't make sense and Davend
without mentioning any name of the enemy.

The Kalir in the Piyut of Shabbos Parshas Zachor writes
זכור יושב הנגב בלי על כערד כסות ולשון שנה
Seems that the Kalir holds (unlike Rashi) that he changed
both, his clothing and also his language.

The (מהרש"א (ר"ה ג ע"א  says that we can say that the
Kalir & Rashi are not arguing. The meaning of כסות ולשון שנה
is that the כסות didn't match the לשון since he wore Amaleiki
clothes and spoke Kanani language. (like Rashi)
