Hi,

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.

Thanks,

MG.

I agree, or you could say "He is credited with inventing the telephone.

Oops, sorry, I just noticed it should be:

"He is credited with the invention of the telephone."
Thanks folks.
