Hi! I was wondering if the phrase 鼻をぐずぐずいわせる(to sniffle) could be used to describe someone snorting in his/her sleep. The scene I'm reading is describing a mother crying by her dead husband, while her son is sitting in a corner of the room. 坊やはうとうとしている。 -- (...) I cut a long part of the text describing the mother -- 坊やは目をごしごしこすっている。 -- (...) once again, I cut a long part of the text describing the mother -- 坊やが鼻をぐずぐずいわせている。 Given the 2 first sentences, I get the sense that the little boy finally fell asleep and is snorting but I'm afraid I might be misunderstanding. Is he perhaps "sniffling"because he's crying ? Thanks a lot for your help !
