I thought substantive is derived from the word substance. As in, the politician's speech was substantive. (it had substance) and I only just realized that I have been pronouncing the word wrong too. I pronounce it sub-stan-tive instead of sub-sta-n-tive with the n silent. I just love our language. I wish more people would learn it.
