No problem here. This is a working example of the code I used to test 
your code:

on mouseUp
   put empty into field "f1"
   -- put empty into field "f2"
   put freddo() into frog
   repeat for each item i in "a,c,b,d"
     put gF_getA(frog,i) & space after field "f1"
   end repeat
end mouseUp

function freddo
   put "Freddo" into frog["a"]
   put "Frog" into frog["b"]
   put "was" into frog["c"]
   put "here." into frog["d"]
   return frog
end freddo

function gF_getA pArray, pKey
   get pArray[pKey]
   return it
end gF_getA

I also tried 1-4 as indices. Everything worked as expected. The output 
is:
Freddo was Frog here

Do you have an error in the prior code or in display?
