Oxford English Trickionary

The online version of the OED (subscription required) uses an ASCII version of IPA, and I can't figure it out. [more inside]

vocabulary building

I'm pretty verbose, but I don't think my vocabulary has grown much in years. And I'd like to build it up. [more inside]

"Normative"

What does "normative" mean? Is it a useful word? I only ever see it used in obscure, academic writing, which makes me suspect it's worthless. How is it different from "normal"? My dictionary says it means, "Of, relating to, or prescribing a norm or standard: normative grammar." That sounds like "normal" to me, so why not just say "normal"? Can someone give me some clear sentences that use the word -- sentences that are not written in post-modern, complit speak? Can one use "normative" meaningfully in a sentence about real-world things, like butter, eggs or bricks?
