    the name for combination of laughing and snoring

    Hello all users!

    Sometimes people laugh and snore at the same time. By snoring, I mean the sound made by their nostrils (grunting?). Is there a name for such behaviour?

    Thank you.

    Maybe "laure" or snaugh"?

    When you laugh at the same time as grunting with your nostrils, then it is the behaviour I think of.

    Please see Funny Little Kids Snoring and Laughing - This Will Make You Laugh! on YouTube.

    Please watch Snore laugh on YouTube - it is even a better examle of what I mean.

    Those are definitely snorts, as Piscean suggested.
