adv.— «“I ’clare, Viney,” one would say, “Hit looks pime blank like its daddy in the face.” Bubba had heard Uncle Hadacol say “plime blank,” and reckoned that it was one of those Appalachian expressions that education shoved out of the common lexicon. He figures that it means “exactly” or “completely” or “plumb,” as in “He looks plumb like his daddy.”» —“‘Pime’ or ‘plime,’ Bubba draws a blank” by Gene Owens Mobile Register (Ala.) Apr. 6, 2006.
