Neutralization (Acid-Base) Reaction

I understand that a neutralization reaction between an acid and a base will produce some type of salt (most commonly NaCl) and water (H2O).

However, I am now dealing with a neutralization reaction which produces an acidic salt (a salt with a hydrogen proton) and water.

I was wondering how this works, and how I would be able to tell which 2 acids & bases will produce this acidic salt.

Can you give an example of the reactant side of the formula, and explain how I could figure out from the reactants whether they will produce an acidic salt, or a regular salt?

Thank you.

Take any diprotic (or multiprotic) acid and add less base than is necessary for FULL neutralization.

It is all in stoichiometry.
