Research on the temporal organisation of speech with respect to age is extremely important as it may provide empirical confirmation for the various models of speech production. With the advancement of age, speech motor control becomes more secure, and so the child gradually approaches the level of articulation and speech tempo typical of adults. There have been numerous works published on the temporal relations of English-speaking, normally developing children; however, the relevant literature still lacks data on bilingual children. The present paper  aims to fill this gap: it discusses the temporal organisation of speech in Hungarian-Bulgarian bilingual children between the ages of 9 and 13 and monolingual children of the same age in a developmental perspective. The data  on monolingual children in this paper also break new ground as only few papers have dealt with the speech rate of Hungarian children and none with that of Bulgarian children.
