Why are oxoacids more readily lose H+ ions? And what are "oxoacids"?

An oxoacid contains oxygen, contains at least one other element, and has at least one hydrogen atom bonded to the oxygen.
The oxoacids more readily lose a H+ if the resulting anion can be stabilized by electron withdrawing atoms.
