The word "Wysoki" means High (masculine). Similar, "Wysoka" means High (feminine) and "Wysokie" - High (neutral). If used as a name place the first two versions could not stand alone, but would have to be followed by a noun, as in "Wysoki Las" (High Forest) or "Wysoka Góra" (High Mountain). However, the third, neutral version, could stand alone; "Wysokie" simply implying "High Place" or "High Village".
"Wysokie", when spelled Vysokie, could be pronounced in English exactly the same as Vysoki; hence it was easy to loose the final letter E in the word.
There are 15 "Wysokie" villages in Poland, three of them in NE province, Podlaskie Voivodship.
Wysokie, Gmina (municipality) Korycin, Sokółka County,
Wysokie, Gmina Raczki, Suwałki County,
Wysokie, Gmina Wiżajny, Suwałki County,
The latter lies right on the Lithuanian border.
