Dear INDOLOGY members,
Has anyone come across the verb "hreṣ" - "to neigh" or "to whinny" in the
sense of "to laugh"?
I am reading a passage in the medical treatise Aṣṭāṅgasaṃgraha
(Sūtrasthāna 2.16) on correct professional conduct for a physician that
hreṣaṇīyāṃ ca tadvārrtāṃ na prakāśayate bahiḥ|
"He does not reveal any xxx news about him outside."
Obviously, "to be neighed" does not fit the context.
Any suggestions would be very welcome.
