It'd be easier to use a regular expression for something like this.
Something like this would work (from PHP Architect):

$s = "I am going to be {a} years old on the {b}th of November, {c}.";
$a = array(
"a" => "one hundred",
"b" => "seventeen",
"c" => "two thousand two");
$z = preg_replace("/\{([a-z]+)\}/e","\$a['$1']",$s);
echo $z;
I am going to be one hundred years old on the seventeenth of November,
two thousand two.
