Her research interests include the Slavic languages, the linguistic prehistory of northern Eurasia, language typology, ancient linguistic prehistory, and languages of the Caucasus, chiefly Chechen and Ingush.[3] She has made fundamental contributions to these fields.[4]


A festschrift in her honor, Language Typology and Historical Contingency: In honor of Johanna Nichols, was published in 2013.[5]

Nichols's best known work, Linguistic Diversity in Space and Time, won the Linguistic Society of America's Leonard Bloomfield Book Award for 1994.[6]

In 2013 Nichols was inducted as a Fellow of the Linguistic Society of America.[7] In 2023 she was elected as a member of the Academia Europaea.[8]
