Is the phrase "Not any special" grammatically valid?

As a stand alone sentence you would say,"not anything special".
Or "nothing special."
And it's:"grammatically correct." At least this is usually said. It's a matter of usageSource(s): American Engliah speaker

Not by itself. But as others have shown, it may be 'valid' as part of a sentence.

In the right context, it could be. By itself, it doesn't make much sense.

Yes, in the right place in a sentence. Example: Is there a special reason why you're going there? No, there is not any special reason.

No. What are you trying to say?
Are you seeing anyone? Not anyone special.
Did you buy anything at the store? Not anything special.
Did they have anything on sale? No, there were no specials.

No. The word "any" refers to a choice of multiples, but the word "special" means unique. You could say "Not very special" instead.
