Lat. avēna f. 'oats; stalk, straw (MDV); pastoral flute (DH)' < PItal. *aweksnā- (MDV). Note also PSl. *ovьsъ < PBSl. *awiź(s)-. "Probably a non-IE substratum word… Slavic and Baltic do not have the same suffix" (MDV).
Michiel de Vaan. "avēna" in: Etymological Dictionary of Latin and the other Italic Languages. Indo-European Etymological Dictionaries Online. Edited by Alexander Lubotsky. Brill, 2014. Brill Online. August 5, 2014. < http://iedo.brillonline.nl.ludwig.lub.lu.se/dictionaries/lemma.html?id=12790 >, PSl. *ovь̀sъ m. ‘oats’ & BSl. *awiź-, *awiś- (RD). Compare Lat. avēna f. 'oats; stalk, straw (MDV); pastoral flute (DH)' < PItal. *aweksnā-. Etymology disputed. "Probably a non-IE substratum word" (MDV). BUT: "The Balto-Slavic and Latin forms can be derived from *h₂eu-iǵh- (cf. Schrijver 1991: 46-47), except for the fact that Slavic has a voiceless sibilant. A substratum origin cannot be excluded". Derksen proposes a PIE etymology: PSl. *ovь̀sъ m. ‘oats’ < BSl. *awiź-, *awiś- < PIE. *h₂eu-iǵh(s)-eh₂-, only to conclude that "substratum origin seems more probable" (RD).
