Combine only works on one level of the array. Because of that, you need to write a repeat loop:

--untested!
repeat for each key theKey in myArray
  combine myArray[theKey] by return and "/"
  repeat for each line theLine in myArray[theKey]
    put theKey & "/" & theLine & return after theResult
  end repeat
end repeat
put theResult
