No, the accented Marie is the way Afrikaans people write it when they want the emphasis on the second syllable.Because normally other Afrikaans people would pronounce the word MAAH-ree (emphasis on first syllable), which is the German way of saying it.Afrikaans is spoken by other Dutch-descended people here in South Africa, such as myself.
