Rotating words, different speed on hover

Hey everyone,
I’m in the planning stages of a new website, so don’t have a live link to share yet.

One interaction element I’m trying to create is rotating words that are links, and the rotation slows down on hover.

Here’s an example of a similar animation. Only difference is that I don’t want the words to entirely stop, just slow down to a much slower speed.

Is this possible? Does anyone have any tutorials they can share so I can figure this out?

Here is my public share link: LINK
