Winner: professorfish's bash answer! An entire 9 bytes! Wow!
You may continue to submit your answer, however you can no longer win. Original post kept for posterity:
Your goal is to convert a whole number between 1-9 into the word it represents.
- You will not need to worry about decimals
- The user will input a number. Assume that they will never enter anything 10 or higher
- The user must type the number at some point, however the method the program reads it does not matter. It can be with stdin, reading a text file, etc, however the user must press the 9 button on their keyboard (for example) at some point
- It is not case sensitive (ie, "one", "One", "oNe", "OnE", etc are all acceptable)
- HTTP/etc requests are allowed, however any code executed by the server the request is made to counts towards the byte count of your final code (e.g. if I had a C++ program make a HTTP request, the PHP code used in the HTTP request counts)
- Anything that can compile and run is acceptable

- This is a code-golf, so the shortest code wins
one) acceptable? \$\endgroup\$
3, you can't output
one two three four five six seven eight nineeven though you technically output
three. Similarly, you can't output
three seven, etc. \$\endgroup\$
