Is there a way in Mplus to model a two-class categorical latent variable corresponding to the sign (negative/non-negative) of an existing continuous latent variable? The more general goal is to estimate a connected piecewise linear latent variable regression using cross-sectional data.

I can't think of a way to do that. At the most the sign of the latent variable mean in the two classes can be restricted.
