Hi, Yasukotta,

Hi!  Could I ask you what part of speech is the word "anger" in the following sentence:

(1) He is slow to anger.

I thought that the "anger" there would be an intransitive verb, but I just realized that it might be a noun.

I would appreciate it if you could share your thought.  Thank you!

I see that 'anger' here is an intransitive verb in the infinitive form. According to Collins Dictionary and LDOCE, 'slow to' is followed by an infinitive, so 'anger' can't be a noun here.
