anrufen - to call (a *separable-prefix verb)

Separable Prefix Verbs

These are verbs that separate into two parts when used in the present and simple past tenses, as well as in the imperative. 
For instance, the verb "rufen" (to call, shout) can add the separable prefix "an-". 
The verb "anrufen" means "to call", specifically by telephone).
The prefix "an" goes to different positions, depending on the tense or mood of the verb. For example:
 
Present tense, Simple Past, and Imperative - the prefix goes at the end:
• Ich rufe dich sofort an.
(I'm calling you right away.)
• Er rief gestern sehr spät an.
(He called very late yesterday.)
Ruf mich bitte an.
(Please call me.)

Future tense, and Present Conditional - the prefix stays attached:
• Ich werde dich heute Nachmittag anrufen.
(I'll call you this afternoon.)
• Ich würde dich gerne anrufen.
(I would like to call you.)

Perfect Tenses - the prefix stays attached to the past participle:
• Ich habe dich gestern angerufen.
(I called you yesterday.)
