Anything that accepts a pair of electrons is called a Lewis acid, and anything that accepts pairs of electrons at an acidic hydrogen is considered a Bronsted acid. Lewis acids can be considered generalizations of Bronsted acids.
A Lewis acid and base accept and donate electrons respectively. Make sure you know the difference between that and Bronsted-Lowry acid and base which donate and accept protons respectively.
