In everyday communication situations, we have to listen and attend to one (target) speaker in the presence of one or more (competing) speakers. Segregating speech from competing speech required higher cognitive processing demands. Koelewijn and colleagues reported that the type of masker affects processing load especially when the masker contains semantic-linguistic information. Objective of this study was to investigate the effect of competing speech information on cognitive effort during speech perception indicated by task evoked pupil dilation. In contrast to these previous studies, the effect of masker type on processing load was investigated using Danish sentences.
