We theoretically study high-order harmonic generation (HHG) and attosecond pulses from an atom irradiated synchronically by a terahertz (THz) pulse and an infrared laser pulse. For the HHG spectrum from the THz pulse alone and the combined pulse, an apparent peak-valley structure appears the platform region. Specially, for the periodic structure generated by an atom under the action of the combined pulse is originated from the interference between the electrons ionized at different instants in the laser field, which undergo many recollision and return to the core at the same time. Therefore, continuum harmonics with few chirps from the interference enhancement region can be achieved, which result in a chirp-free isolated attosecond pulse.
