I have an interaction in my model between two latent variables.
xy | x XWITH y;
I am only interested in the effect of my interaction term (xy) on 3 dependent variables. Theoretically, I don't care and do not hypothesize about the effects of the two latent variables (x and y) on the 3 dependent variables. Do I still need to model the two original latent variables, or do I just model the interaction term?
