The joyous one or The lady full of mirth are just

two of the possible English equivalents of 'La Gioconda', which is

the lesser known title of the world famous painting 'Mona Lisa'

['My Lisa']. In the word by word translation, the feminine definite

article 'la' means 'the'. The feminine adjective

'gioconda', used as a noun, means 'mirthful, joyous, jocund,

gay, cheery'. The phrase is pronounced 'lah joh-KOHN-dah'.
