What is a normalized pointer, how do we normalize a pointer?

It is a 32bit pointer, which has as much of its value in the segment register as possible. Since a segment can start every 16bytes so the offset will have a value from 0 to F. for normalization convert the address into 20bit address then use the 16bit for segment address and 4bit for the offset address. Given a pointer 500D: 9407,we convert it to a 20bitabsolute address 549D7,Which then normalized to 549D:0007
