  • I've voted to close as this question doesn't make sense to me. Nouns and verbs are different parts of speech. Part of the meaning of "erase" is that it is a verb. So a noun can't have the same meaning. You might have an noun meaning the effect, or the action, or the thing that erases, or the thing that is erased.... but it can't be the same.
