hey guys, ive been constantly strugglying to get my code working but have had no luck. i have 2 classes, ListDictionary.java & wordbase1.java which are both linked lists that have an inner node class. ListDictionary.java is an array of linked lists, which reads words in from a text file called dictionary.txt, where for the array every element of the array represents a letter of the alphabet, and contains a linked list of words in alphabetically order starting with that letter. The wordbase1.java is suppose to be a linked list containing all the words in the dictionary which is of 4 letters or less in length, in alphabetically order, and i seem to be getting errors with my array varible. My code is below, any help would be great!

Code:
public class wordbase1 extends ListDictionary
{
   private wordbase head;
   private ListDictionary insert;

   public wordbase1(ListDictionary insert)
   {
      super();
      this.insert = insert;
      head = null;
   }

   public void insertDictionary()
   {
      insert.addToDictionary();
      wordbase p = new wordbase(array[0].getWord());
      for(int i = 0; i < 26; i++)
      {
         p.getWord() = array[i].getWord();
         if( (array[i].getWord()).length() <= 4)
         {
            if(head == null)
            {
               head = p;
            }
            else if(head.word.compareTo(p.word) >=0)
            {
               p.next = head;
               head = p;
            }
            else
            {
               wordbase node = head;
               while((node.next != null) && ((node.next).word).compareTo(p.word) < 0)
               {
                  node = node.next;
               }
               p.next = node.next;
               node.next = p;
            }
         }
      }
   }

   public class wordbase extends NodeDictionary
   {
      private int flag;
      private wordbase next;

      public wordbase(String word)
      {
         super(word);
         flag = 0;
         next = null;
      }
