I am working on the jwnl13 java API. I am not able
access the derived forms. For example derived forms
of the word writer are write, authorial, authorship,
author etc.. It
giving null pointer exception when I do the
following:

I am trying to find relationship between the words
writer and write. Following below is the call I am
making in the code,
RelationshipList list =
RelationshipFinder.getInstance
().findRelationships(start.getSense(1), end.getSense
(1),
PointerType.DERIVED);

I think I am doing it right and I think that the
older version do not have this method implemented.
I was wondering whether this version jwnl13 had
methods implemented for accessing derived forms. If
not, can you please send me the latest code.

Thank you in advance. I appreciate for your time and
consideration

    This is a really old request, but to be thorough I looked at it. It didn't error out on me trying to search for writer - write relationship, and it did work finding writer - screenwriter using a PointerType.HYPONYM relationship.

    This was using JWNL 1.4 RC2.
