Trying desperately to remember the author of a series of stories from a decade or so back. The protagonists (I believe a different one in each story) were members of a guild of linguists that were called upon in first-contact situations. The stories were set in a future with a multi-species (not all humanoid) federation or empire. The source may have been Asimov's or Analog rather than F&SF.

I'm guessing that you're thinking of Sheila Finch's Lingster stories.
