Which one of the following sentences sounds better? I feel that there should be ‘the’ before ‘invention’ as the invention is specific.

1. He is credited with invention of telephone.

2. He is credited with the invention of telephone.


I agree, or you could say "He is credited with inventing the telephone.
#2 sounds better to me.
