Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech Czech/German names of Moravan towns #austria-czech

Dear Genners -

I have a two-part question which isn't strictly speaking genealogy, but some
clarification would be appreciated.

The general question is: at what point did the language spoken in what's now
Moravia change >from Czech to German?
Was it after 1526 when the Czech lands were incorporated into the Hapsburg
domains?

The more specific question is: at what point did the Moravian towns acquire
German names - such as Brno/Brunn, Kostel/Podivin, Jihlava/Iglau etc.

I need this information, if any is forthcoming, for a talk I'll be giving
later in the year.

Many thanks.
