Gradience has often been identified as an important factor of linguistic change. A lexical‐syntactic explanation of Sorace's (2000, 2004) gradients in auxiliary selection with intransitive verbs is provided. Of particular interest here are the gradience factors involved in the replacement of BE by HAVE in Old Catalan and Old Spanish.

Keywords:   gradience, auxiliary selection, lexical syntax, Old Catalan, Old Spanish
