    "I feel great respect for you"?

    I feel great respect for you.

    Does it have another meaning other than that a feeling of admiration in the given sentence?

    Re: "I feel great respect for you"?

    It's unnatural. Generally, we use "to have" with respect, or we use "respect" as a verb.

    I have great respect for you.
    I respect you very much.

    "Respect" and "admiration" aren't necessarily synonymous.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
