      I believe you get the base of a word, as you are looking for it as:

      IndexWord indexWord = (Dictionary.getInstance().lookupIndexWord(p,s));
      //where p is the POS of the word you are looking up and s is a string for the word, e.g.:
      IndexWord indexWord = (Dictionary.getInstance().lookupIndexWord(POS.VERB,"painting"));
                  String yourword=indexWord.getLemma();

      Note the reason you must specify the POS as in this case, you are speaking of the verb painting, versus the noun of the same word! -Ralph Vince
