I hate when people use "ask" as a noun. As in, "What's the ask?" Godawful business-speak nonsense.

You've turned a verb into a noun into a adjective.

Speak is a verb
Business-speak would be a noun, it's synonymous with "business-jargon."
However in this sentence fragment: "Godawful business-speak nonsense." "Business-speak" is modifying "nonsense."
Q. What kind of "nonsense?"
A. "Business-speak" nonsense.

I would rewrite it as:
"I hate when people use "ask" as a noun. As in, "What's the ask?" They speak extremely unpleasant and nonsensical business-jargon."

The polar oppositeness of these two posts is so great.

It was a literary reference and I used it correctly.

-speak
a combining form extracted from newspeak (coined by George Orwell in his novel, 1984), used in the formation of compound words, usually derogatory, derisive, or facetious, that denote the style or vocabulary of a discipline, person, era, etc., as specified by the initial element
