Is taw acceptable in place of bod

Not in this particular pattern - the second part of the sentence is not emphatic, so bod is required to introduce it. If the second part was emphatic, it would be introduced by taw/mai and it would contain a separate verb:

  • Dw i'n meddwl bod Siân yn dal - (unemphatic) I think that Siân is tall

  • Dw i'n meddwl taw Siân ydy'r dalaf - (emphatic) I thank that Siân is the tallest
