I remember reading his book "Strictly Speaking" but don't think I ever read "A Civil Tongue". I admit that I remember little about Strictly Speaking other than the impression that Mr. Newman seemed to me to be against the idea of a language evolving at all. But, I have to add, I cannot find any evidence that the term "consensus" ever meant more than "the majority opinion" or perhaps "the official opinion of a group".
