    Overstatement

    Hi,

    Which one sounds more natural to you?

    1. Call it overstatement, but I would say it anyway.
    2. Call it an overstatement, but I would say it anyway.


    Thanks

    They're both possible. I would use the article.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
