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 
reads

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.

I am not an INDOLOGY list member: kindly CC replies to me at 
<d.wujastyk at gmail.com>

With thanks,
Dagmar
