What is the correct term for the accentuated syllable in a multisyllable word?

Example:

(the name Theodora) thee-oh-DOHR-uh = the DOHR syllable?

Could one refer to it as the "accentuate" or is there another name for it?

Surely there must be something simpler than "accentuated syllable."

Thanks.
