Any reason anyone can think of why "ambulas dormisve" shouldn't work?

Why should it? What is the "ve"?

The -ve can be used for an 'or'. There is also one that can be used for 'and', -que (remember seeing this one really early when I first studied Latin. It is not presented on Duolinguo, but is sometimes accepted, from what I understand).

Wiktionary entry for -ve

I use -que all the time on here and it's usually accepted (or I've reported it and then it's accepted later). This was the first time I'd tried -ve instead of aut, though.

Is this a threat?

Ambulatis aut ad pisces dormitis - Probably a common phrase from the Romans' Sicilian cousins

'...take the cannoli, leave the car...' Same movie. Lingot habes.
