I have this sentence (However you may find it technical):

If it matches any of the anchors, the anchor is marked as visited. If there is a context which is defined over this anchor, it is checked whether the beginning or ending of this context can be marked with this anchor or not.

is it a natural way to say about the investigation of a situation to determine something?


The passive construction "is defined over" is not quite natural, nor is it perfectly clear. Normally we'd say

if the anchor belongs to a context

Also, the passive constructions "it is checked" and "can be marked with" are clearer and simpler if recast in the active:

...we check whether the anchor marks the beginning or ending of the context.
