Hello once again!
Can you tell me the difference between

Don't underestimate me! and Don't underrate me! Which one is more used in English and what's the difference between those two words? Is there any other similar word?

My second question. Can we say both I'm Croatian and I'm Croat?

  • English - Native speakers -

    "Don't underestimate me!" is the phrasing I've heard. I've never heard the phrasing with "underrate" even though they seem to mean about the same thing.

    ------------------------

    "I'm Croatian" is the better of the two. If you want to use the word "Croat" then you'd say, "I'm a Croat."
