Contributions of different collective excitations to the density-density and heat-heat time correlation functions in pure liquids are studied within an approach of generalized collective modes. It is shown, that a kinetic relaxing mode, caused by slow density fluctuations, defines almost completely the shape of density-density time correlation function for wavenumbers close to the main peak position of the static structure factor. Analytical three-variable model is used to explain negative amplitudes of contributions to dynamical structure factor from short-wavelength excitations. Such contributions can appear in the range of wavenumbers close to the main peak position of static structure factor.
