[R] Basic Question on Keys/Values

As a java programmer, I'm having issue conceptualizing the following use

Given an value, passed into a function, how do I pull out the lookup?

A list of keys (key1, key2, key3)
A list of values (val1,val2,val3)

I want to write a function (or is there something built in?) such that

Callit <- (thekey) {
(magic happens here)
Return value

Any ideas?

Thanks a bunch!
