The Bronsted-Lowry definition is: an acid is a substance which can act as a proton donor. By this definition, any compound which can easily be deprotonated can be considered an acid.

And its reverse is base..

A Lewis acid is a substance that can accept a pair of electrons to form a covalent bond.
