'Especial' is not used in everyday conversational English... at least NOT in American English. You should avoid using it so you do not use it incorrectly.
'scape' is not a separate word in the English language and should never be used without a prefix... escape, landscape, etc.
When listening to a native speaker, they may not use proper enunciation and pronounce their words badly... so you may hear 'scape' when they are actually saying 'escape'!
