Yet another interesting sentence in "Gerund" that is too long for timed practice.

I have to say this, because it irks me: we call a "blackboard" simply "tablă", adding "neagră" sounds very unnatural to me.

Erasing should be an acceptable translation for Stergând as well ("Erasing the chalk from the blackboard, the teacher told us the homework.")
