Weibull is best known for the critical re-evaluation of early Swedish and Scandinavian history that he made in the books "Kritiska undersökningar i Nordens historia
år 1000" (1911; "Critical investigations in the history of the Nordic region about the year 1000") and "Historisk-kritisk metod och nordisk medeltidsforskning" (1913; "Historical-critical method and Nordic medieval research"). With his brother Curt, he attempted to put Scandinavian history on firmer ground.
His most well-known book, "
sprogteoriens grundlæggelse", or in English translation, "Prolegomena to a Theory of Language", first published in 1943, critiques the then-prevailing methodologies in linguistics as being descriptive, even anecdotal, and not systematising. He proposed a linguistic theory intended to form the basis of a more rational linguistics and a contribution to general epistemology. Like Ferdinand de Saussure (1857–1913), he accepted language as a system of signs, from the point of view of language use. He argued that a theory of semiotics should be consistent within itself, comprehensive, and as simple as possible.

Grieg studied at King Frederick's University (now the University of Oslo) and spent some time travelling abroad, sometimes as a tourist and sometimes as a sailor. Receiving the Norway Scholarship for 1924, Grieg spent a year at Wadham College, Oxford in England, studying history and literature. At least one of Grieg's poems, "Kapellet i Wadham College" ("the Chapel in Wadham College"), was inspired by his stay at Wadham, where he was a contemporary of Cecil Day-Lewis and where he among others befriended G.K. Laycock. Grieg made his debut in 1922 with first book of poetry "
Kap det gode Haab" ("Around the Cape of Good Hope"), based on personal seagoing experiences - as was "Skibet gaar videre" ("The Ship Sails On") in 1924. The latter book aroused controversy for its exposure of sailors' harsh living and working conditions.

He stayed there for another eight months before returning to Uppsala in 1776. In 1787, he travelled to Senegal on an expedition to find land for colonisation.
