    Do you think the sentence is transitive?

    Hello, Horizonincumt.
    In your sentence, "The spiral of heated air and moist air begins to twist and grow and spin faster and faster in a counterclockwise direction.",
    the underlined part (called an "infinitive phrase") is the object of the verb 'begin', in my opinion.
