Spin fluctuations were studied over a wide momentum ($$hbar$$$$Q$$) and energy ($$E$$) space in the frustrated ${it d}$-electron heavy-fermion metal LiV$$_{2}$$O$$_{4}$$ by time-of-flight inelastic neutron scattering. We observed the overall ${it Q-E}$ evolutions near the characteristic ${it Q}$ = 0.6 $AA $^{-1}$$ peak and found another weak broad magnetic peak around 2.4 $AA $^{-1}$$. The data are described by a simple response function, a partially delocalized magnetic form factor, and antiferromagnetic short-range spatial correlations, indicating that heavy-fermion formation is attributable to spin-orbit fluctuations with orbital hybridization.
