We propose and develop to some extent a novel approach, which allows to effectively describe, for relativistic heavy-ion collisions, the empirically observed deviation from unity of the intercept $\lambda$(i.e. the measured value corresponding to zero relative momentum ${\bf p}$ of two registered identical pions or kaons) of the two-particle correlation function C(p,K). The approach is based on the use of two versions of the so-called q-deformed oscillators and the corresponding picture of ideal gases of q-bosons. By these techniques the intercept $\lambda$ is put into direct correspondence with the deformation parameter q. For fixed deformation strength, the model predicts particular dependence of the intercept $\lambda$ on the pion pair mean momentum ${\bf K}$.
