Powder X-ray diffractometry and $$^{155}$$Gd-M$"o$ssbauer spectroscopy have been applied to the Ce$$_{1-y}$$Gd$$_{y}$$O$$_{2-y/2}$$ prepared at 1450$$^{circ}$$C. The former shows that this system forms a complete solid solution being the disordered defect-fluorite type in the smaller y range than 0.30 and the order C-type beyond y = 0.30. Its marked positive non-Vegardianity was consistently interpreted as a generalized Vegard-law behaviour of this distortion-dilated solid solution having Gd$$^{3+}$$ - oxygen vacancy association. The latter also clarifies that in the ordered C-type phase with decreasing y the 8b-site $$^{155}$$Gd-M$"o$ssbauer intensity steadily diminishes and vanishes at y = 0.50, indicating that the more-distorted minor 8b Gd$$^{3+}$$ in C-type GdO$$_{1.5}$$ is being preferentially replaced with Ce$$^{4+}$$.
