While the rhythm of natural languages has been extensively studied, also by calculating the rhythm metrics, the acquisition of rhythm in (early) simultaneous bilingual speakers is a field of research that remains under-investigated. This article critically assesses the most important recent studies on the rhythm of bilingual speakers and offers reflections on their application in future research, exemplarily applied to the Alps-Adriatic region.
