Examples: "That was a really great movie, I could sit through it again 20 times," or "That was such a great dinner, I think I’ll eat at this restaurant every Friday after I get my salary."
In these two example uses, the word great as it is used here, essentially means terrific or very good.
However, one can also use the word great to denote something which is one of a kind, or is unique. Examples:
"Muhammad Ali was a great world Heavyweight boxing champion" or "Michael Jordan was a great basketball player, perhaps the greatest of all time."
Notice here that when we use the word great, and then we wish to distinguish it in some way, we can say that it or he or she is the greatest. Indeed, Muhammad Ali’s nickname, ironically but not coincidentally, was "The Greatest," -- as in the greatest boxer of all time.
Some people in the United States will say the word greaterest, when they are trying to make it clear who or what "is the greatest of all the greats," -- in other words, who unquestionably is the best.
While this is NOT correct English, and the word greatest is sufficient to use here, people nonetheless are starting to say it. In time, the word greaterest might become "standard" English, but for now, it is considered to be wrong.
