"This sentence is an exaggeration."
"This sentence is exaggerated."
Are these two sentences natural or unnatural and is there a meaning difference between them?
Thank you so much in advance.
The first sentence describes another sentence as an exaggeration and is correct.
This sentence is an exaggeration.
The second sentence has all of the correct elements of a sentence but doesn't make sense. A sentence can be an exaggeration, as in "I've told you a million times not to do that.", but can't be exaggerated.
This sentence is exaggerated.
