Lewis acids are electron acceptors and Lewis bases are electron donors. Bronsted acids are hydrogen ion donors and Bronsted bases are hydrogen ion acceptors.

Hey, I just answered someone else's same question with these definitions of Bronsted Acids and Bases and Lewis Acids and Bases. I hope this helps!

Bronsted Acid: proton donor
Bronsted Base: proton acceptor

Lewis Acid: lone pair acceptor
Lewis base: lone pair donor
