"Very marked" and "very pronounced" are literal English equivalents of the Italian phrase molto marcato. The phrase most famously refers to a local or regional accent that recognizably is distinct and to a part that is played more loudly in a music piece. The pronunciation will be "MOL-to mar-KA-to" in Pisan Italian.
