We applied the dependency analysis developed by Deese to the same three longest narratives of each child as were subjected to both high point and episodic analysis. The second author was trained by Deese and scored all 288 narratives under his supervision. That is, whenever there was any question about the mechanical application of the analysis, he was consulted. He checked parts of over half of the narratives, and he checked approximately 12% of the narratives completely, including the most complex ones.
