a post from chem mod answered the same question and he said, "Amphoteric is an general term for compounds that can act as an acid or a base. However, there are also compounds (like water) that gain or lose a proton to form an acid or base and this proton is where amphiprotic comes from. Therefore, amphiprotic is a more specific definition that only applies to protic compounds"
