The new complex linguistic  technique, which allows  to estimate quantitatively the cognitive complexity of the text, is developed. It is confirmed that the calculated indexes of cognitive complexity of texts correspond to degree of the caused cognitive load of readers (N = 27) measured as dynamics of skin and galvanic reaction of examinees.

Keywords: text, cognitive load, cognitive complexity, linguistic complexity, galvanic skin response
