Derivationally Related Forms

    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),

    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.
