嗻 je1 or 唧 zek1 & other Cantonese characters to emphasize tone or feelings

I was trying to express the phrase “揾吃jek/zek*” but I have no idea what is the Chinese character nor the pinyin for it even though I have been using the word in speech for years when I speak Cantonese. Turns out it could be 嗻 je1 or 唧 zek1. Which one is the right one?

So after some googling around, I copied a table from a “Learn Cantonese” website and wrangled it with other sources I found. The table below are characters with the character mouth 口 as a part of it. Most of them are used to emphasize tone or feelings, just like the Malaysian usage of lah, leh, lu, loh, etc. 

For audio pronunciation, the characters  are linked to a Cantonese pronunciation dictionary (粤语发音词典).

Characters in red = audio pronunciation yet to be found.
Characters in orange = audio pronunciation found is different from what I thought it shoudl be. 

Seeing how I did not learned Cantonese formally, there might be mistakes.

This is a work in progress, comments are welcomed.
