In this paper we explore the consequence of bonding inhomogeneities on the structural, magnetic, and electrical transport properties of liquid Te in the temperature range 675-1250 K. Assuming that the short correlation length b is of the order of several interatomic separations, local electronic structure and local response functions are defined. The volume fraction C of the metallic regions was determined from Knight-shift data. The enhancement factor for the spin-lattice relaxation rate is proportional to C-1, in good agreement with the experimental data. The electrical conductivity and the Hall coefficient were analyzed in terms of an effective-medium theory.
