do all acid base reactions from a salt and water?

Yes, this is because the anion of the acid combines with the cation of the base to form a salt. The H combines with the OH to get water.

When an acid and a base react, the compound formed by the cation of the base and the anion of the acid is a salt

Both water and salt are produced when strong acids and strong bases react. So for a strong acid + weak base, water is not usually formed since weak bases are not typically hydroxides. A weak acid + strong base the result is basic. A weak acid + weak base depends on the relative strength of the reactants.

In lecture, Lavelle said that Lewis acid and bases always produce salt but not always water. Bronstead acids and bases always produce water and salt.

When acid and base solutions react, they produce water and a neutral ionic compound, salt, which is composed of a cation (from the base) and and anion (from the acid).
