Yes, of course. These are not instances of viśeṣa as the latter part of
a compound, etc. Here are a few examples, all of which are followed in
the text by quotations from other works:
atra rātrijanmanīṣṭakālayoge viśeṣa uktas tājikālaṃkāre |
atra viśeṣa ukto dīpikāyām |
anyo ’pi viśeṣas tatraiva |
atha dhanarṇe lagnānayane viśeṣaḥ |
atrāntakaraṇe viśeṣa uktaḥ paddhatau |
Such instances are very numerous. There is also the following, where
'particular method' might fit better than 'special rule':
evaṃ sakalagaṇakasārvabhaumaśrīmadrāmadaivajñāptavidyair mādṛśair
aneke viśeṣāḥ kartuṃ śakyante |
I anyone has matching examples from other contexts, I'd be very
interested to see them.
