I just thought of this the other day, I don't know how it came to my mind. Do Spanish words have any prefixes, suffixes, or roots?

Plenty.

There's the diminutive suffix 'ito/a', to make things 'smaller'

Casa - Casita

Chico - Chiquito

Here's a bit of information about suffixes and what not http://spanish.about.com/od/spanishvocabulary/a/intro_to_suffixes.htm

Yep definitely.

Think of the suffix 'mente' or the prefix 're'.
