I think you might be:

the Spanish word Qué?, meaning 'What?'

My prefix sounds of lines

Your prefix is simply, 'Q', which sounds like 'queue' - a synonym of 'line'.

My infix's on signs

Your infix is 'U' - a letter used on road-signs to signify where a U-turn is or isn't permitted.

My suffix's hat's askew

Your suffix is 'É' - a letter which looks like it's wearing a little hat at a jaunty angle.

I'm Spanish, it's true

The word 'Qué' is Spanish.

As for the title:

Well, when you ask us "What word am I?!", you literally mean it - you are the word 'What'... just in a different language!
