    'or' or 'or else'

    "Or" or "Or else": Which one I should use?

    1- Turn the water up, or (else) we'll be here forever.

    2- Turn the water down, or (else) water will splatter everywhere.

    3- We must be there by six, or (else) we'll miss the beginning.

    4- You should eat more, or (else) you'll make yourself ill.

    Re: 'or' or 'or else'

    They're all fine without "else", which is how I'd probably say them. However, "else" is possible in all of them. It adds a little emphasis.
