In a way, yes, because "special form" sounds
like something you don't understand, while
"form" sounds like something you would
understand, only you don't (probably), so it is
more confusing.

Technically, "special form" can be used, but
then it should be explained, "form" can also be
used (should also be explained), because both
are correct.

Since the topic is TeX, either (or both) should
be marked so the reader understands it is
a special... term!

Provide a glossary! Or a "glossary companion"
on-line. Usually nobody cares about such stuff
but perhaps 1/100 will and 5/100 or more can't
complain it is missing :)

If 100 people reads the article, it is worth
doing. Compared to writing the article, it is
very fast work and besides kill&yank can
probably be employed from the Emacs manual.
