From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (15Feb98) [foldoc]:
   specialisation
  
      A reduction in generality, usually for the sake of increased
      efficiency.   If a piece of code is specialised for certain
      values of certain variables (usually function arguments), this
      is known as "{partial evaluation}".   In a language with
      {overloading} (e.g. {Haskell}), an overloaded function might be
      specialised to a non-overloaded instance at compile-time if
      the types of its arguments are known.
